This might be one of many things:

  1. Search for "Asus virtual camera" in the start menu, go to properties, then the compatibility tab and check the box that says "run in 256 colors"
  2. Uninstall the Smartloogon utility, it might be using the cam.
  3. Close all software that can use the cam (skype, yahoo messenger, msn messenger, etc)
  4. You could have malware installed that uses the cam, run antivirus and antispyware utilities to check.

How can i tell if my built in camera is working, R704A, windows 7


If the laptop still has all the original software installed, check in All Programs for ASUS folders and utilities. Find and open Life Frame. If you can't find it try Skype. It will automatically find the cam and let you test it. Another way is to do a search on-line for 'vidcap.exe'. This is a freeware application that allows you to capture video clips but will also display the output from the cam.

Hi i cant seem to locate my built in camera i cant turn it on for video talk it says there is no camera connected what do i do


Here is the support page for your laptop. Unfortunately, there are 10 different camera drivers. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us. You did not state Windows you are using and entering that info into the page may narrow things down a bit. In my Asus there are 3 programs for you camera. The virtual camera seems to have to be turned on in order for it to work in the other programs. Hope this helps.
